Maintenance and Planned Preventative Maintenance for Medical Decontamination Equipment
The medical decontamination maintenance services we provide are primarily safety and preventative examinations designed to maintain the reliability of autoclaves, sterilizers, washer disinfectors, automated endoscope reprocessors (AERs), ultrasonics, gas plasmas and other peripheral medical decontamination equipment. Compliant to HTM 01-01 through HTM 01-06 protocols
Equipment breakdowns are frustrating and disruptive to any organisation. Our experience has shown that regular servicing significantly reduces the frequency of breakdowns and can be of benefit in detecting problems before they become major, expensive repairs.
All maintenance work is as per manufacturer’s instructions, all replacement parts used are manufacturer guaranteed and all recognised UK and European industry protocols are followed to ensure the equipment is compliant to the exacting standards set.
Within 48 hours of completing the tests, our clients will be sent a report detailing the performance of the machines tested. The format of the report can be customised to the clients’ specific requirements. This report is also available to download from a secure client area in the cloud based Audere database.
The maintenance service is flexible and can be structured to suit a client’s specific requirements. The programme can range from ad hoc repair visits, planned maintenance as required by all necessary UK and EU protocols encompassing HTM 01-01 through HTM 01-06 publications to fully inclusive programmes as included in our popular Service Contract Schemes.
The goal of the comprehensive preventive maintenance program is to reduce lost revenue due to machine failures by:
- evaluating all equipment
- designing a scheduled maintenance program
- maintaining a current database to track scheduled maintenance and identify potential problems
- working within scheduling guidelines of client for the most convenient maintenance times
Typically our routine maintenance service will include:
- electrical safety check and inspection of the equipment
- a service of the major mechanical components including valves, filters, pumps, seals
- calibration check of the equipment including gauges, displays, process recording equipment
All our customers benefit from our UKAS ISO 9001:2008 accreditation which ensures full traceability of all works and administration duties. Upgrade to UKAS ISO 9001:2015 is currently planned with SGS
